The main axis of this complex is a north-south street that divides two buildings. There are two types of contexts here: housing units in the southern area are constructed simply with blocks of basalt stone and limestone walls. To the east ands west of the street, spaces with hewn basalt stone are distinguished and still preserved. East of the street there is a building with steps that lead to two miqwa'ot (ritual purification baths), a room paved with hewn basalt stone and another with a mosaic floor. A corridor that runs parallel to the street connects the miqwa'ot and the basalt stone room with benches. To the West of the street a second building with similar architecture was found. Here, two miqwa'ot and a room with a basalt floor can be observed. The characteristics of these spaces suggest that this is a ritual area dedicated to purification and suggests a higher socioeconomic level and the possibility that these spaces were occupied by Jewish religious elite.
